 What affects the Cost of CNC parts?
The price of CNC machined parts depends on the following:
1.Machining time: The longer it takes to machine a part, the more expensive it will be. Machining time is often the main cost driver in CNC.
2.Start-up costs: These are related to CAD file preparation and process planning and are significant for smaller volumes. This cost is fixed and there is an opportunity to reduce the unit price by taking advantage of "economies of scale".
3.Material cost: The cost of the bulk material and the ease with which that material can be machined greatly affects the overall cost in CNC. Optimizing your design while having certain material considerations in mind, can greatly reduce the price.
4.Other manufacturing costs: When you design parts with special requirements (for example, when you define tight tolerances or design thin walls), then special tooling, closer quality control, and more processing steps - at lower machining speeds - may be required. This, of course, has an impact on the total manufacturing time (and the price).
